Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 “spider” controllers promise more precision in first-person shooters

The Xbox 360 and PS3 Avenger from GamingZap isn’t for casual FPS fans. But it may give hardcore players a slight competitive edge against opponents.

So technically it's bullsh*t.. plus it looks dumb lol

As a complete loser, who spends most of his time playing FPS games, I can see how this would help improve some players' games. Any slight advantage helps when playing against top competition.

The only problem I see is that this peripheral shares the same cost as brand new controller, or game. What a joke.

I'll stick with my XCM XFPS adapter and use a keyboard and mouse over this device.
